Abstract

Retro proteins are no more similar to their parent sequences than any random sequence despite their common hydrophobic/hydrophilic pattern, global amino acid composition and possible tertiary contacts. Although simple folding models contribute to our global understanding of protein folding, they cannot yet be used to predict the structure of new proteins.
